Bristol Zoo Aquarium – Fresh Water Displays Refurbishment

Displays Refurbishment: Two large freshwater displays at Bristol Zoo

ATL have recently completed the installation of replacement glazing to two large freshwater displays in Bristol Zoo’s acclaimed aquarium. The operation to remove the badly scratched existing laminated glass viewing panels and replace them with new low iron laminated glass panels mounted in polished stainless steel mullions was a logistically challenging job.

With the very limited access that was available inside the operational aquarium ATL had to use a range of specialist materials handling equipment and techniques to remove and replace the large and very heavy glass panels.

The dramatic improvement in display visibility, overall impression of a much lighter display area and clean modern look of the polished stainless steel mullions all blend to help to bring this iconic aquarium bang up to date. ATL’s experience in taking on and delivering challenging refurbishment projects of this nature give owners and operators of existing aquariums a far more cost effective route to improvement than the alternative of closure and complete redevelopment.
